PRESIDIO - Hundreds of pounds of pot confiscated in West Texas.
A big chunk of that marijuana was seized at the Presidio Port of Entry on Friday.
Border agents say they found 129 pounds of illegal drugs in the fuel tank of a van with a family of 11 inside, coming into the U.S.
That was just part of a busy Friday for authorities, who also made arrests in El Paso and Antelope Wells.
Officials uncovered almost 650 pounds of marijuana in ten separate cases.
